Leiths graduate, Angela Malik worked at Bidendum and Vong. Recently launched, her eponymous, Acton-based cookery school focuses on Asian cuisine via the prism of the five taste sensations – hot, sweet, salty, sour and umami.
Hands-on classes include: real Vietnamese, the perfect Indian, Thai food made easy, brilliant cocktails and canapés, a taste of Morocco, chocolate making and Dim Sum at home. Angela also offers walking tours of Chinatown.
Attached to the school, a shop and delicatessen stocks Angela’s signature ‘Indian pestos’.
